Question about Garden
You have spark so a quick test using starter fluid.
Remove air filter.
Spray a short bust (~1 second) of starter fluid directly into throat of carburetor.
Promptly crank engine.
If engine is not flooded and spark, timing, and compression are satisfactory, the engine will run for a couple seconds until starter fluid is exhausted.
If it fires with starter fluid it indicates no fuel is being delivered from carburetor.
If it doesnt fire, then insufficient spark, engine is flooded, insufficient compression, or timing.

Go to toro.com then click customer care, then click manuals and parts. Type in model no. and download the owners manual. This should get you the spark and flywheel gap. Probably still something in the carb. Some orifices are very hard to find and to clean but they must be clean. Also check for dirt dopper nest in the muffler.

It's your ignition, which you can take that stuff apart on the left hand side of the saw under the recoil. I have 2 of these, & you can get the parts. Maybe its just the magneto gap adjustment, which is like a business card or newspaper width gap. I would check that first. Hope this helps you, Rick

You engine has a low oil level sensor. If the oil level is low or..... the sensor is bad it will ground the ignition from the coil with the engine switch on. For troubleshooing only disconnect ONE wire from the sensor AFTER you make sure the engine oil level is properly serviced. Then check for spark.
If this does not correct the problem just respond and I will help you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

it or not, your gas cap is clogged up with dirt and debris. When a
carburetor is unable to get a constant flow of air from outside,
pressure builds up on the fuel tank. The fastest way to determine
whether or not this is the problem is as follows.
As you are using your Mower, at that point when it begins to stall out, loosen the gas cap so that you release the pressure that is built up in the gas tank. If the engine begins to regain power, then you know it is a clogged gas cap. (Simply get a small wire and clear the breathe holes in the cap.) If the engine dies even after loosening the gas cap, then you may want to check to make sure the air breather is clean. ( A dirty air breather can cause the engine to over heat and stall out.)
If none of this seems to help, then it is probably a bad Ignition Coil.
